The story is pretty simple. It is a story of a honest politician Sankaranarayana (Prakash Raj) and how he is backstabbed by some of his own trusted followers, who join hand with his rival Kota Srinivasa Rao. Everyone assumes that Sankaranarayana has died in a road accident but there is a murder attempt on him by Nayak (Sonu Sood). The twist is that Sankaranarayana has not been killed but has gone into coma. Meanwhile, his son Ajay (Mahesh Babu) grows up and becomes an IPS officer. However, he regains conscience after 14 years.
The doctor tells Ajay that he must keep his father always happy, as he has been hurt on his head. He should not strain himself and no shocking news must be told to him. Ajay brings his father back from Mumbai and enacts a big drama to keep his father happy. He acts like an MLA, who is doing good to the people like his father. For this he takes help of the family members, his colleagues in the police department. Ajay gets full support from his boss Suman.
